Very true.  At my old place of employment a DUHL listed an ip since
before my previous company existed.  For some reason, when we obtained
it, they still listed it. Sounds like a bug in the DUHL bot to me.
Also the standard makes a lot of sense.  You may be on Trend Micros
DUHL by following the rules on SORBS DUHL and vica versa.  Makes life
a pain.
